Summer 2017 Editors’ Picks

1. HomTex

HomTexWhen a blanket is too much and a sheet is not quite enough, HomTex’s new DreamFit Degree 6 quilted ensemble is the perfect answer. Made from Micro Tencel and Supima, the bacteria- and allergen-resistant sheet ensemble delivers valuable comfort benefits. The temperature regulating Micro Tencel moves and releases excess moisture to create a dry sleeping environment that feels softer than silk, while the American grown Supima cotton ensures the fabric is both comfortable and durable. The Degree 6’s patented design consists of a fitted sheet, a quilted top sheet and two pillow shams that are quilted on one side for fashion and flat on the other for function.

5. Tyler Net

TylerNetBased on decades of experience, TylerNet’s Smartwerks has epitomized the very idea of what a cloud based POS system should be. Created to complete sales faster and with fewer errors, Smartwerks offers enormous flexibility allowing retailers to go mobile, accept multiple forms of payment, reserve items and process more than just carryout sales. But Smartwerks isn’t just a POS system; it provides a comprehensive collection of analytical tools, and also aids retailers in tracking inventory, customers and employees—giving business owners the opportunity to make smarter business decisions while also creating better relationships.


6. Classic Brands

Classic BrandsLong believed to be the highest quality latex option for mattresses and other sleep products, Talalay latex has generally been out of reach price-wise for those on a budget. Not so anymore with the introduction of Classic Brands' competitively priced, three-bed Urban Loft Balance Collection. By using strategic, globally sourced Talalay latex and bulk purchasing, the company is able to offer a premium material at a more promotional price point, giving retailers the opportunity to better compete with both high-end businesses selling latex mattresses, as well as online retailers peddling a lower-quality product.
